NY Caprice Dress: I lined it!! - July 30th

Remember the whole story about the NY Yarns Caprice Sundress? This was quite a project as I ended up frogging, re-designing and re-crocheting the entire body of the dress. I even wrote up the pattern modifications. In the end Abby loved it. But, as it 'hung out" on her while she wore it, the small holes became a bit larger and I thought a dress lining was warranted afterall. Well I finally sewed (scary thought) a lining, and then discovered that yarn stretches and basic lining material does not. So, I re-did the lining, with side slits in the bodice and basted the lining to the bodice across the center front and back only. My Dad would be proud, I "jury-rigged" it !! Here's my princess, one more time, in her lined dress, in front of my hydrangeas.

Oh how sweet! I have a 6 year old daughter who is crazy about wearing sundresses--I think she would love this, and I have lots of yarn to use up. Thanks so much for taking the time to show it off and wish me luck with making it. Marie
